I hope the bug about not detecting the original FM-PAC is fixed Tongue
(You need to have done CALL MUSIC before starting the game...)

it was working fine when I just ran my image in BlueMSX... didn't try it in the real MSX, though.
The "Element" logo screen seemed a bit garbled, but everything else appeared fine....

Had never played this one. I guess it's ok-ish...
-obvious where it got its inspiration from
-not the best sprite artwork, but otherwise not un-pretty
-typical Dutch-style FM-Pac music Tongue
-collision detection is a bit sloppy
-playable nevertheless

And that concludes my ultra-mini-review Tongue

Well, I find it a great game Smile
Note that it has also end bosses and, IMHO, the graphics are really stunning and the music is IMHO not much like typical Dutch FM music. It's actually pretty good!

Did you use a config in blueMSX which imitates a real FM-PAC? (So, the Panasoft one.)

No, I didn't use a config like that. It was probably using MSX Music like how a 2+ or turbo-r does.
That's also the way how MSXPLAYer does things AFAIK, so the bug would then never occur, I guess.

It turned out that the MCCM Millennium version contained another bug, though. There's a level that can't be solved. I guess the Sunrise version doesn't contain this bug, but we had to fix it ourselves (which was not easy at all), because we couldn't find any bug-free version anywhere. The original (Sunrise) copy I bought did contain the bug, but the developers said a patch was released once - nowhere to be found, though.

Hmm I can only remember one mega patch.
Any idea of which level it was (rough number is good enough)
One thing my version has one level that has to be finished two times.

It was level 43.

How can it be easily checked if the game is bugged in level 43?

With a password.... (nope, don't have 'em).

I just checked my original disk and that one does have the proper FM-PAC detection. It has a nasty copy protection, though...
